Pretzel Shop

New businesses are reappearing in downtown Freeport, and the city has commissioned (or allowed) new murals in several places—including in this space between buildings. Of course, Freeport has long been known for pretzels, owing to its settlement by German Americans. From 1908-1915, the minor league baseball team played, the Freeport Pretzels. They one a league title in 1907.
